Welcome -

Welcome to pre-k!  

We are in for a great school year.  Our teaching team consists of myself, Ms. Shawn Patterson, and my teaching assistants, Ms. Lara Grigsby and Ms. Kathy Butler.  We will be educating and caring for your child this school year.  I have been working with young children since 1991.  The last 7 years have been in Putnam County School System with the inclusive pre-k program at Cookeville High School.  I am excited to be teaching with the team at Prescott South and look forward to an amazing year.  

Our philosophy and goal for the school year is to empower our students to achieve to the best of their abilities while developing socially, independently, academically, physically, and communication skills.  We have high expectations for our classroom.  We will be using A Big Day for Pre-k curriculum with support from various resources including Quirkles science.  Our class will go on field trips and have a few family engagement opportunities.  We welcome communication and want to be an encouragement to your family.

Please contact Ms. Shawn with any questions or to set up a meeting time.  Ms. Shawn will greet all families in the morning and afternoons (unless student rides a bus) and welcomes short communications, but please write down important details - such as someone new picking up your child, a change in pick up time, medication/medical changes or meal changes, etc.  Mornings are hectic and I may forget these details.  Contact me by e-mail at spatterson@pcsstn.com or classroom phone number is 931-525-4803.

Let's get ready to experience, ponder, reflect and wonder!!!
